Tune Up Kit for following distributors
#0231178009, #9230081094 or Bosch 009


includes a 03010 Distributor Cap, a 04033 Rotor, 4 Bosch W8AC Spark Plugs and 09001 Spark Plug Ignition Wires, and to send a signal through the distributor an electronic points kit replaces the original points and condenser.

The electronic ignition helps improve fuel economy with a better spark for smoother acceleration. An added bonus is the hassle of replacing the points and condenser periodically is no longer necessary. Points and condensers haven't been offered in automobiles for decades as electronic ignitions simply work better. The Ignition Components fit Bosch 0231178009 & 9230081094 centrifugal (or mechanical) advance distributors as well as the various aftermarket 009 style distributors in 1954 through 1977 Beetles, 1971 through 1979 Super Beetles, 1956 through 1974 Karmann Ghias, 1955 through 1971 Type 2 Bus models and 1973 through 1974 Things.

Electronic Ignition

Electronic Ignition

IGNITION CONVERSION KIT for 009 DISTRIBUTOR! Convert standard ignition into an electronic ignition with this conversion kit!

Key Features:

  • Eliminates points and condenser.
  • Dust and water resistant
  • Flawless ignition performance with no points to "bounce"
Must be used with a coil with an internal resistor or an external ballast resistor.

This kit is for the 009 (after market) distributor on the following cars:

VW Beetle and VW Super Beetle 71-79
VW Bus 71-79
VW Karmann Ghia 71-74
VW Type 3 71-73
VW Vanagon 80-mid 83
VW Thing 73-74

In an electronic ignition system all of the spark plug firing
is directed electronically. There are no moving parts in an
electronic ignigion system, so nothing to wear out. The
fuel and air mixture is ignited optimally so starting is more
reliable in an electonic ignition system. Plugs last longer.
Wear out of points, which results in decrease in "dwell"
period, is no longer a problem when you install electronic
ignition.However: to guard against the small possibility
of a system failure (rare with our electronic ignition) which
would kill the car, we do recommend carrying a set of
points and a condenser.
